their fair share of taxes. he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their children and gun-free zones for our kids. host: that the latest ad by the nra, put out yesterday, getting a lot of feedback about the ad invoking the president's children. the "washington times" has this headline this morning about president obama's event this morning. that is our question for all of you. if president obama acts on his own with executive action, do you support that idea? we're getting your take on that this morning. we will go to sandra in sulphur springs, texas, a republican. caller: how are you? i just have a question to ask the rest of the people listening. what about the fort hood shootings? has anybody thought about how many guns were there? the man walked in, he was a psychologist, he walked in and killed our soldiers at fort hood. . what is the gun ban going to do on that? what does obama think about that? host: what do you think about the president taking some actions on his own? caller: i don't think anybody ought to take our guns away.
, he said he would not extend any of the bush tax cuts for the wealthy and you did. you say you're not going to negotiate this year, why should house republicans take that seriously and think if we did into the 1 minute until midnight scenario that you will not back down? >> first of all, julianna, let's take the example of this year's fiscal cliff. i did not say we would not have any conversations out all about extending the bush tax cuts. i said we would not extend them for the wealthy. we did not. now, you can argue that during the campaign i said i set the criteria for "wealthy" at $250 on dollars and we ended up being a $400,000, but millionaires are paying more taxes, just as i said. from the start, my concern was making sure we had a tax code that was fair and protected the middle class. when biggest priority is making sure that middle-class taxes did not go up. the difference between this year and 2011 is the fact that we have already made $2 trillion in cuts. at the time, i indicated that there were cuts that we could sensibly make that would not damage our economy, wou
to be uninsured. you're not going to have that option because when you file your taxes, you'll have to attach proof that you are in a government-mandated plan. >> gretchen: wow. >> so if you earn too much to be eligible for medicaid, you will have to go shop on the state health insurance exchanges. >> gretchen: so these health insurance exchanges, a lot of this is rolling out now. >> they'll be open in october. and most people have never heard of these. but they're like an 800 number, a web site, and a dmv type office. and they only sell the government man-dated plan. it's like going to a dealership that sells four door sedans. >> gretchen: they dictate what you're going to get. i thought obamacare was supposed to give you a choice? >> no, there really will be no choice. there will be bronze, silver, gold and platinum. but they all have the same coverage. only the co-pays differ. section 1311 puts the federal government in charge of your health care fort first time, even if you have a private plan you paid for yourself. the secretary of health and human services can still dictate what doctors
of march. there is no question that these big fiscal issues, taxes and spending will define the first quarter of the president's second term. >> george, talk about this term, the second term curse. we -- reagan had iran-contra, nixon had watergate. clinton had monica lewinsky. why is it that they tend to go sour. >> lyndon jonls had to resign before he ran because of vietnam. ever since roosevelt and the amendment that limited his terms, presidents tend to run out of steam and maybe even get tripped up by scandal in these second terms. i think it's kind of a natural reaction to the fact that power is moving on beyond these presidents because, in fact, they are lame ducks. the obama white house has studied this very, very closely. they know the perils of the second term. they think they can avoid the worst pitfalls, first of all, they are saying there's no scandals on the horizon but believe they can avoid the worst by having a focused agenda and moving fast. >> we'll see if they can. george, thank you very much. george will have a special inauguration edition of "this week" this morni
for tax reform by closing loopholes for the wealthiest americans. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing loopholes, we consult the deficit issue without sacrificing our investments in things like education that are going to help us grow. it turns out the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire year's debate over this issue, and they made a clear decision about the approach they prefer. they do not think it is fair to ask a senior to pay more for his or her health care or a scientist to shut down like that saving research so that a multi millionaire investor can take less in tax rates then a second trip -- and a secretary. they do not think it is smart to protect and as corporate loopholes and tax breaks for the wealthiest americans rather than rebuild roads and schools or help manufacturers bring jobs back to america. they want us to get our books in order in a balanced way where everyone pulls their weight, everyone does their part. that is what i want as well. that is what i have proposed. we can get it
. these three states -- new york, new jersey, and connecticut, threes three states pay almost 16% of the taxes collected in the united states of america. three states, 16% of the taxes. you ask the question, who suffered because of superstorm sandy? certainly our neighbors in new york and new jersey and connecticut suffered the most, but all americans will suffer if this economic engine is not rebuilt. the three states that pay nearly 16% of the taxes need this reconstruction, and so does the united states of america. all members, republican and democrat, should vote yes in favor of this legislation. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from oklahoma is recognized. mr. cole: i reserve the balance of my time, mr. speaker. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentlelady from new york. ms. slaughter: i'm pleased to yield a minute and a half to the gentleman from new york, mr. bishop. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from new york is recognized for 1 1/2 minutes. mr. bishop: i thank my friend, representative slaughter for yielding ti
